The saints are those men and women who interpret the teachings of religion and live by the truth of their religion. The writings and poetry in this book are from some of the great Sufi saints. Though it may be very difficult to recognize who is a saint, one of the signs is that a saint inspires and increases the seeker's devotion to God.
